Convert U3D file

U3D U3D File

U3D (Universal 3D) is an open source compressed file format initiated by the 3D Industry Forum to store three dimensional triangular meshes with the additional properties e.g. color, transparency or texture coordinates for the general 3D graphics industry. The U3D file format is mostly used in combination with the 3D PDF technology which allows you to generate PDF documents containing interactive 3D data from the U3D files. Autoconverter and Automesher Application, our U3D file converters can read and write to and from U3D file format thanks to the publicly available open source IFX converter library provided by the Intel company. To simplify generation of 3D PDF documents our converters create a common TEX script which can be easily used to generate a PDF document with the standard and free LaTeX software.


STL STL File

STL (STereoLithography) is a file format developed by 3D Systems company, the world leader in the 3D printing industry. STL files contain triangular mesh only, without face color, texture, transparency and named groups data. While it is possible to assign RGB color value for each individual vertex, Autoconverter our STL file converter doesn't support this STL file extension. You can save STL files in binary or ASCII text file format, with the preference for the former one due to significant STL file size reduction. The triangles in STL files are always defined in millimeters therefore our STL converters will make the necessary unit conversion if required.
